WELCOME TO MOTCOMBE SCHOOL
We Keep Children Safe at Motcombe through our rigourous safeguarding procedures
“Your effective procedures to keep children safe provide a strong safeguarding culture at Motcombe. For instance, the school’s single central record of employment checks on staff is thorough and accurate. The pre-employment checks you make and the rigorous practice you employ when recruiting new staff and volunteers demonstrate a firm commitment to keeping children safe. Leaders have ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose.
You provide appropriate training to ensure that staff know what actions to take to protect children from harm. You work hard with senior leaders to continually strengthen staff members’ vigilance in safeguarding children. When necessary, you do not shy away from challenging parents and carers to address better the welfare needs of their children. You work very closely with other child-protection professionals, such as social services and the police, to protect children from harm. – Ofsted – January 2018
